TUES (Thomson-CSF UK Employee Shareholders) acts as an interface between the UK employees of Thomson-CSF and the company itself. It consists of representatives from most of the Thomson-CSF companies in the UK.
TUES is one of the original six shareholder associations, the others having been formed in France, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and Australia. These countries were involved in the first share issue in 1998. To achieve coordination of the employee shareholder efforts and to represent the movement both within and outside the Group, a federation was created called FAST, based in Belgium (to show its international nature). The chairmen of the country associations belong to FAST.
A further ten countries became eligible to join FAST when their employees subscribed to shares in the 2000 share issue. These countries were Singapore, Japan, South Africa, Morocco, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, Canada and USA.
